A beautifully written book about core values. Clear and precise, yet filled with loving advice, "Stand for Something" encourages the reader to gently probe one's own motives.

President Hinckley was an amazingly strong and wise man with the joy of a child. You will thank yourself for reading this book before you formulate your New Year's resolutions.

Not quite as rich as [b:Heroes Of The Restoration|1252439|Heroes Of The Restoration|Gordon B. Hinckley|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1328044894s/1252439.jpg|1241202]. But perhaps that is because I knew more about this topic than the previous. There were some lovely essays. But much of the information wasn't new.

I love President Hinckley and I remember many of these sermons and talks that he gave. He was so direct but caring in his delivery. He seemed to me like a wise grandpa over the whole church. His testimony of Joseph Smith and the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is clear throughout the lessons. The last lesson on faith is very powerful. He gives a prayer at the end of one of his sermons asking that we can all increase in faith, stating that the thing we need most is more faith in this world, which seems very apparent to me in this world.

Another of my favorite lessons Chapter 16: The Power of the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon has brought me closer to Christ and I believe will continue to sustain me in my relationship with him throughout my life. Christ shines forth from the pages of his holy book, and it brings me great strength to read from its pages each day.

I am so grateful that God prepared President Hinckley, and that we had him with us for so many years.

It is amazing to me what a tremendous difference simple things make.

"A youth boiling with hormones will wonder why he should not give full freedom to his sexual desires; and if he is unchecked by custom, morals, or laws, he may ruin his life before he matures sufficiently to understand that sex is a river of fire that must be banked and cooled by a hundred restraints if it is not to consume in chaos both the individual and the group." (Page 57)

6 Be Positive

"... my wise father would often say, "Cynics do not contribute, skeptics do not create, doubters do not achieve."" (Page 84)
"Cultivate an attitude of optimism." (Page 88)

Potts came across George Washington praying & wrote his wife "I have this day seen what I never expected. The knows that I always thought the sword and the gospel utterly inconsistent; and that no man could be a soldier and a Christian at the same time. But George Washington has this day convinced me of my mistake. (From Mason Locke Weems, Life of WAshington, Armonk, NY: M. E. Sharp, 1986, p 147.)" (Page 111)
